The "i" lineup of cars could very well be used to designate the sub-compact electric megacity vehicle we've been hearing about for a while. The "E" lineup of cars could possibly be used to designate electric versions of current BMW models. "M50d" is speculated to refer to a tri-turbo diesel. "Urbanic" could be a new trim level associated with the megacity vehicles. And "Compactive and "Compactive Tourer" could be applied to wagons based on the 1- and 3-Series.
Funny thing...I was just reading that a couple hours ago... was debating whether or not to post it
